were going to lose.Not on a 59-yard field goal in overtime.The coach was surprised the Tampa Bay Buccaneers even gave Chandler Catanzaro the opportunity Jarvis Landry Jersey Elite , risking giving his team a shot to win with time running down in the extra period."I said there was no way he'd make that, and he did," Jackson said Sunday. "So they won."The longest ever kick in OT barely cleared the cross bar, ending Tampa Bay's three-game losing streak.Catanzaro missed an extra point in the first half and watched a potential game-winning 40-yard field goal sail wide right on the final play of regulation."I stuck to my same routine. The most important thing is not to try to change things too much," Catanzaro said. "I know I just left the first kick out there a little bit to the right, and I just needed to trust it. So, that's what I told myself."The Bucs recovered Jabrill Peppers' fumble on a punt return near midfield, and Jameis Winston shrugged off sacks on consecutive plays before throwing 14 yards to DeSean Jackson to give Catanzaro a chance to win it.The kicker was confident he would redeem himself."I think it's part of my DNA. I've always kind of found a way to bounce back," Catanzaro said. "I rarely miss two in a row. Even if it's from 59, I was just looking for a shot. If it was from 66, I would have tried it."Baker Mayfield rallied the Browns (2-4-1) from a 14-point deficit, using Nick Chubb's 1-yard TD and a 16-yard scoring throw to Jarvis Landry to pull even.The No. 1 overall draft pick completed 23 of 34 passes for 215 yards, two TDs and no interceptions.The Browns defense scored a safety, forced four turnovers and sacked Winston four times.It wasn't quite enough to get Cleveland over the hump in its fourth overtime game of the season."It's very frustrating any time you lose, especially because you could have done a lot of things better. That seems to be the moral of the season," Mayfield said, adding that he also was surprised the Bucs went for the 59-yarder at the end."I'm thinking if he doesn't make it, we're getting the ball at midfield, we have less than 20 yards until our kicker is in comfortable reaching distance," the 2017 Heisman Trophy winner said. "That's a great kick. You don't see that very often."Some things to know about the Browns and Buccaneers:WORKING OTCleveland has played four overtime games this season 鈥?most for a team since Arizona won all four it played in 2011, and tied for second-most in NFL history. The record is five in a season, set by Green Bay in 1983.The Browns, 1-2-1 in OT this year, don't have a road victory since winning in overtime at Baltimore on Oct. 11, 2015.The Detroit Lions also dropped 24 in a row away from home from 2001-03.The next opportunity to end the skid is next Sunday at Pittsburgh.BETTER 'DTampa Bay stopped a three-game losing streak that cost former defensive coordinator Mike Smith his job last week. The Bucs entered Sunday allowing a league-worst 34.6 points per game http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/jarvis-landry-jersey , ranked 31st in total defense, and dead last against the pass. They sacked Mayfield five times and allowed a season-low 305 yards in their debut under Smith's replacement, former linebackers coach Mark Duffner."Every win is different, but this one felt good," defensive end Carl Nassib said.INCREASED WORKLOADCleveland's decision to trade leading rusher Carolos Hyde to Jacksonville for a fifth-round draft choice was driven by a desire to give rookie Nick Chubb more touches and also get Duke Johnson, one of the team's top playmakers, more involved.Chubb, who came in averaging 10.8 yards per carry, finished with 80 yards rushing on 18 attempts. He was targeted twice on passes, but did not have a catch."I thought he did well," Jackson said, noting the rookie also had one big gainer called back because of one of 14 penalties assessed the Browns."We had way too many penalties ... offensively and defensively," the coach said. "We have got to get that squared away."FAMOUS JAMEISWinston completed 32 of 52 passes for 365 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in his first home start since returning from serving a three-game suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct penalty. He also led the Bucs in rushing with 55 yards on 10 attempts, including a 14-yard TD run to make it 16-2 midway through the second quarter."It's huge to get a big win, especially here (at home)," Winston said. "This is a tough league, so you get a win any way you possibly can get it. We can play better, especially myself. But when you win, everything is better." The NFL flagged itself for blowing the call on the nasty helmet-to-helmet hit put on Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.The league said Friday that Tampa Bay safety Jordan Whitehead should have penalized for striking Mayfield in the side of the helmet in last Sunday's 26-23 overtime win. Mayfield was sliding at the end of a 35-yard scramble when he got blasted by Whitehead, who was initially penalized before the officials conferred and decided to pick up the flag 鈥?and one against Mayfield for taunting.First-year referee Shawn Hochuli made the situation worse by incorrectly announcing that Mayfield "was still a runner and therefore is allowed to be hit in the head."Senior vice president of officiating Al Riveron pointed out several mistakes in a video released by the league."I'll tell you ahead of time that we had a flag on this play and we incorrectly picked it up after we had a conference by the officials," Riveron said before showing Mayfield get blasted by Whitehead. "We're watching the defender as he lowers his head to initiate contact, and he does make contact, so that right there is a foul within itself. No. 2, as we can see the quarterback starts to slide White Damarious Randall Jersey , and even though he slides late, he is still afforded protection from forcible contact to the neck and head area."Whitehead is expected to be fined, a person familiar with the league discipline told the AP earlier this week. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because fines are announced Saturday.The shot on Mayfield was making other reverberations Friday.Browns coach Hue Jackson said he was "disappointed" with comments made by Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter, who felt Mayfield was taunting after he jumped to his feet and walked toward Whitehead. Mayfield admitted telling Whitehead he was going to have to hit him harder to knock him out of the game.On Thursday, Koetter was asked for his take on the play and intimated Mayfield was equally guilty."What they said on the field was it's a helmet-to-helmet hit and then (Mayfield) got up and taunted our guy, so then they threw the second flag," Koetter told reporters in Tampa. "Somehow, they worked it out that they were picking up both flags. Where I was on the field, I didn't see it as a helmet-to-helmet (hit). But when you look at it on tape, it clearly was, and I guess the fallout from that is what it is."Jackson was bothered by Koetter's remarks, and defended Mayfield's actions after the hit."That disappointed me," he said. "The guy shouldn't have hit our player in the head, first of all, and, obviously, our guy got up and he tossed the ball to the official. Obviously, the guy was close by, but the bottom line is our guy shouldn't be getting hit in the head. I don't care about some taunting foul. We're talking about our quarterback taking a shot in the head and sliding. I think that's wrong. Totally wrong."Jackson further explained his disappointment with Koetter, arguing that Whitehead's hit triggered everything."The biggest thing that happened was the quarterback got hit in the head," Jackson said. "Taunting? Does that really matter? I mean, really? That, to me, made no sense."
